SUPPORT FOR PACIFIC SIDS REPRESENTATION
Aroha provides technical and advisory support to Pacific Small Island Developing States in becoming more adequately represented on a permanent basis and on enhancing their representational capacities in Geneva.
WHY ENHANCE REPRESENTATION OF PSIDS?
Geneva is a major global hub for international relations and development, humanitarian and environmental assistance and policy-making. PSIDS continue to be the most under-represented group of UN member states in Geneva. Strengthening PSIDS representation in Geneva would enable Pacific interests and values to have a more significant role in shaping international assistance and the outcomes of decision-making bodies in cooperation areas that include development, disaster risk reduction, disarmament, environment and climate change, health, human rights, labour, migration, security, trade and telecommunications.
